Holy. Hell.

First off, thank goodness Sophia Floersch, a 17-year-old Formula 3 driver, is alive after this crash.

At the Macau Grand Prix she was involved in one of the scariest, and fastest, crashes you’ll ever see. I could barely pause the video to get a look at the car flying through the sky. She suffered a spinal fracture in the wreck, but was in good spirits tweeting, “Just wanted to let everybody know that I am fine but will be going into surgery tomorrow (Monday) morning … Update soon.”

She’s tough as nails. See the crash below.
